A fresh demonstration is to be held in support of workers who have been “locked out” of a huge building project to produce biofuel in the future.
Around 400 Redhall Engineering Solutions employees lost their jobs at Saltend Chemicals near Hull last month after the biofuels project fell behind schedule.
A growing number of building workers have been joining protests and the dispute has now been made official by the GMB union.
General secretary Paul Kenny said it was an “attack” on workers’ rights, adding: “There are growing fears that this lock-out is nothing more than a ruse to bring in different, lower-paid workers.
“It is vitally important that Jacobs, BP and the other clients join with GMB to get this workforce back to work and dispel these fears.”
